  • This moody, murky exploration of nocturnal decadence was the last song written for Electric. The Pet Shop pair had decided that they needed one more track for Electric and by this stage, Chris Lowe and producer Stuart Price were in Berlin and Neil Tennant was in Los Angeles. One morning Tennant woke up to find three e-mails from Lowe with ideas for tracks he'd done at home, all of which he liked. Tennant recalled to Electronic Beats magazine: "I sent it back to Chris and said, 'Why don't we make this the ninth track on the album?' And then we did quite a lot of work on this: put the vocal on, turned it into a song,"
